Sudanese-Scottish artist Eliza Shaddad releases a single ‘Blossom’ on Rosemundy Records.

Available on Bandcamp as well as via a host of less reputable sites, the track has already received airplay from the likes of Huw Stephens and Gideon Coe on BBC 6Music, as well as BBC London’s Robert Elms and BBC Scotland’s Roddy Hart.

The tune, self-penned, was produced and mixed by Mr BJ Jackson at Bass Gravy Studio, and mastered by Tim Rowkins.

The Scots-born Sudanese artist, now based in England, has previously released three EPs and one album working with independent UK labels Beatnik Creative, Big Indie, and German label FerryHouse Productions.

She has also toured with artists such as Bedouine, Kate Tempest, Lucy Rose, Oh Wonder, Max Jury, Keane and Turin Brakes, and collaborated with award-winning poet Anthony Anaxagorou, contemporary jazz group Hansu-Tori, and Grammy-winners Clean Bandit.

Shaddad is also a founding member of ten-year-strong female arts collective Girls Girls Girls, which works to empower women within the arts, and to raise awareness and funding for the anti-female genital mutilation charity Orchid Project.

In 2021 she is set to undertake an ambitious live project with the support of Arts Council England and Jerwood Arts, building on a full year of weekly Instagram livestreams and collaborations which have been viewed in excess of 250,000 times.
